<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/stupid.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":sign:"> So my friend had this scab on his hand that he kept wanting to pick. I kept telling him not too. I can't find any information to back me up on this. Picking at scabs only makes it worse & he thinks I am being dumb.<br><br>
Anybody have any ideas??

Picking at scabs... reopens the wounds- slowly down healing, increasing scarring, and giving the wound another chance at infection.<br><br><br><br>
Bad idea! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Me too. Picking scabs is fun. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"><br><br><br><br>
Seriously though, it's not a life or death issue so let your friend do what he or she wants.

I have such a problem with scab-picking. You have no idea...<br><br><br><br>
Why don't you find some info online about scab-pickong (and why it's bad) and show it to your friend? Also, suggest to him that he read a book, see a movie, or do something that will get his mind of the scab that is screaming and screaming to be picked.
